A short documentary film focusing on the work of an Ashford charity has premiered on television and online.

Speech and communications organisation Find A Voice (FAV) were selected for the Untold Stories scheme, which matches small charities with top filmmakers.

Directors and film crews volunteer their time to create professional shorts that demonstrate the impact of the chosen charity’s work.

The Beaver Lane charity was one of 25 good causes selected to take part in the eighth series.

About the film, Liz Collins, FAV’s chief executive, said: “We were really excited to be part of the Untold Stories scheme and to have the opportunity to see our film on TV.

“The chance to work with a professional filmmaker on the project was an amazing opportunity that an organisation like ours would not usually be able to access, and we are thrilled with the results.”

The video (below), features guest appearances from actor Jan Francis and stand-up comedian Lee Ridley, aka the Lost Voice Guy. Both are patrons of the charity.

The scheme is run by the Media Trust, a not-for-profit group that helps other charities spread their message.

The video is now available to watch on YouTube, and is appearing on the Media Trust’s digital TV station, the Community Channel.

The Community Channel is owned and run by communications charity Media Trust and can be viewed 24 hours a day, on Virgin 233, on Sky 539 and on Freeview 87 from 2am-8am.
